An incredibly portable and insanely playable take on an American icon.

Redlands, CA (August 15, 2017) -- Building upon their ever popular travel-sized guitar line, Traveler Guitar has broken the mold once again with the bold and brave Travelcaster Deluxe, an incredibly portable and insanely playable take on an American icon.

Inspired by over six decades of heritage and tradition, the Travelcaster is a full 25 1/2” scale electric travel guitar. At just 5 lbs. 3 oz. and an overall length of 33.75 in., the Travelcaster emphasizes portability without sacrificing playability. It comes equipped with 3 single coil pickups, 1 volume control, 2 tone controls, a 5-way pickup selector, and chrome 14:1 gear ratio tuners. The 3-on- a-side headstock and 2-point fulcrum tremolo make for far better tuning stability while the bent steel saddles and bone nut produce more sustain and better tone. The Travelcaster also boasts traditional guitar features like 22 medium jumbo frets, poplar body, and a maple neck. Available in a retro surf green with maple fingerboard or classic gloss black with rosewood fingerboard, the Travelcaster pays tribute to the past while also offering an innovative and forward-thinking portable solution for guitarists on-the- go.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
